By Aaron Chimbel
Staff Reporter

Although some university officials have painted a flattering picture of the “win-win” partnership of freshmen men living in Greek residence halls, one freshman student says his experience has been far from ideal.

The Frogs, led by head coach Jim Wacker, did something that hadn’t been done in 52 years. They blew out an opponent on its home field by beating Utah State 62-18. I know last year’s fans would look at that as just another Saturday, but in the early 1980s any win was cause for celebration, and that blow out led to the mother of all keg parties.
